Robert Alford Picks Off Tom Brady, Takes It Back For TD

HOUSTON TX- FEBRUARY 05 Lady Gaga performs during the Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show at NRG Stadium

That lead was doubled when Ryan threw his first touchdown pass of the game, to Austin Hooper as the Falcons ran into a 14-0 lead. This time Julian Edelman was the one who made a catch like that, just as improbable, an inch, if that, away from the pass being an incompletion. By this point, not at all surprising. The team had a rough start with a loss to begin the season, but with each passing week, the team gained more momentum with Ryan controlling the offense.

And as they prepare to face an Atlanta team that scored the most points per game in the league, the Patriots have jelled at the ideal time on defense.

Sunday's win gave Brady the most Super Bowl titles by a quarterback and matched Charles Haley for the most Super Bowl titles by a player.

But Dion Jones from the Falcons stops Blount and the Pats are three and out in their first drive.

"There were a lot of plays that coach talks about, you never know which one is going to be the Super Bowl victor". An hour later, giddy Patriots players would recall the sack as the moment they believed they could pull off the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all time to win, 34-28, in overtime.

So when Atlanta and New England finished love-love through 15 minutes in Houston, it was all, sort of, proceeding according to script.

Ryan was the best quarterback in the National Football League this season and led one of the 10 best scoring offenses in National Football League history. He was picked off in the second quarter by cornerback Robert Alford, who returned it 82 yards for a touchdown and 21-0 Falcons lead.

Dodd-Frank: Trump to Undo Wall Street Reform, Consumer Protection Act
Donald Trump has been critical of 2010 financial law, calling Dodd-Frank a "disaster". Previous executive orders have been far more sweeping than originally advertised.

Yet, it is hard, very hard, to find a flaw in Brady's big game performance, especially since there is so much evidence in his favor.

But the problem was most of his Patriots were not doing their jobs - including star man Brady.

An incomplete pass later, the Falcons punted - after running only 18 seconds off the clock on three plays.

The Atlanta offense continued to hum along in the third quarter when Ryan connected with Tevin Coleman. We're you freaking out over the comeback win, too? Get in the end zone and that's six points.

That was unexpected enough, but not almost as much as New England's weak response. Sky Sports takes a look at Brady's previous triumphs. "The best attitude, brings it every day and we just kept going to him".

New England was done, yes? A win Sunday would make Tom Brady the first quarterback with five rings (breaking a tie with Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana), and Bill Belichick would surpass Chuck Noll as the first head coach to win the game five times. They put up points left and right and they move the ball at will. When it was ruled a catch, the lost timeout for the Falcons limited their chances of scoring after New England had made it 28-28 with 57 seconds to go. All Atlanta had to do was take care of the ball. Both Tom Brady and Matt Ryan were both taken to the ground on two occasions by the opposition's defence.
